« Part 1: Wooden Bowls from the Scroll Saw with Carole Rothman and Book Give Away Part 2 of Books series Part 3: Woodworking with the Router - Book Review and Give Away »

This month I chose to review the book “Outdoor Furniture – Built to Last” from Fox Chapel Publishing because it seemed to fit well with the theme this month. Outdoor furniture has to be designed to stand up to the elements for years. When building outdoor furniture we need to account for the fact that it will get rained on, scorched by the sun, and dried out by the wind. With the right supplies, design, joinery, and hardware our furniture can be built to last, and this book can help. The 14 projects in this book include Chairs, Benches, Tables, Swings, Gliders, Planters and more. Step-by-step instructions include exploded diagrams, patterns, and illustrations of each project. Although I would like to see more coverage of the pre and post work, it is a solid and good project book.
